Chanteur Country US originaire de Amarillo (Texas).
singer and songwriter in the Texas honky tonk tradition, Aaron Watson plays
country music with a traditional feel but a young man's energy and spunk, and
has earned a loyal fan following in the Lone Star State. Born in Amarillo, TX,
Watson's earliest musical influences were the gospel hymns he sang in church
with his family and the classic country records by
Merle Haggard, and
Willie Nelson his folks played around
the house. Watson began writing and singing his own songs while he was a student
at Abilene Christian University, and after graduating he became a regular
fixture on the Texas honky tonk circuit. In 2002, Watson released his first
album, Shutupanddance, which was a major success in Texas, spawning the
hit singles "Off the Record," "I Don't Want You to Go (But I Need You to Leave),"
and the title tune. The album also earned him airplay and media attention
nationwide, and Watson followed up his debut in 2004 with The Honky Tonk Kid,
which was produced by Ray Benson of
Asleep at the Wheel and featured guest
Vocalss from Watson's hero, Willie Nelson.
Watson and his band the Orphans of the Brazos captured their energetic live set
on tape with their 2005 release Live at the Texas Hall of Fame, and
Watson returned to the studio in 2006 for his fourth album, San Angelo.
In 2008 Watson began transforming his sound -- albeit subtly and without leaving his Texas roots behind -- toward a more contemporary country radio-friendly one on the reflective Angels & Outlaws. In 2010 he released The Road & the Rodeo, returning to more uptempo material, while smoothing his edges further. The result was more airplay, higher-profile touring engagements, and charting inside Billboard's Top 200.
